Make Money Blogging: What Does It Take To Generate 1,000,000 Pageviews & $3,000 Per Month

You want to make money blogging? You do? I can help you. But don’t think I am going to give you yet another 101 ways to make money online. Because it doesn’t work that way at all. Seriously.

If you already have a blog and is exploring ways to monetize your blog then here’s a list of over 40 Google AdSense alternatives to make money blogging.

Over the past several months, I have been trying to scale-up my content creation process — to create more blog posts per month in a consistent way. However, I was not able to do it and is yet to find a way that works for me.

But the good thing is, I ended up doing a lot of maths. I love maths. No, not the stuff that you and me learned at school — differentiation, integration, algebra, matrices, etc. — but the one applied in real life.

In fact, that’s how I ended up writing a fun blog post about How Much Traffic Do You Need To Make $100,000 a few years back. It was all about traffic and income and surprisingly it became one of the most popular posts on my blog.

So, today I just wanted to do a reverse blog post based on the numbers that I have worked out.

That is,

How Much Money Should You Invest In Content Marketing To Generate 1,000,000 Pageviews And $3,000 Per Month

And it’s about traffic, income, and costs too.

The only problem is, the math that I have used on the previous blog post can be applied to almost any blog/website out there. But the current math can’t be as it’s mostly based on my own traffic insights plus few case studies.

So, there’s every chance that the actual figures applicable for your own blog could be a lot different from mine. Needless to say, it ultimately depends upon your website’s niche, authority, and marketing efforts.

For instance, the number of pageviews of a blog depends very much on its bounce rate. Even a slight change in bounce rate means a lot in terms of pageviews.

My bounce rate is over 85% and the number of pages per visit is 1.30/visit. Now if I’ve managed to reduce my bounce rate to say around 80% then the number of pages per visit will be around 1.50/visit.

And it will easily result in a 15% jump in pageviews (with zero additional content creation).
